The topic of vegetarian, vegan, and raw food is more popular than ever. But do you actually know what the difference between the three is?
Vegetarians do not consume any fish, meat, or poultry and can be divided in three groups. A lacto-vegetarian consumes dairy products and an ovo-vegetarian consumes eggs. A lacto-ovo vegetarian consumes both dairy products and eggs, but no meat.
Products labeled “vegetarian” typically do not contain any meat or meat-derived products; however, there are no regulations in the U.S. governing the use of “vegetarian” on a label. To be certain that a product is vegetarian, contact the manufacturer. An example of a meat-derived product is gelatin, which is prepared from animal bones.
Vegans are vegetarians who do not consume any animal/insect=derived products including dairy products, eggs, and honey. This group avoids animal/insect-based food dyes, binders, and additives.
Individuals who eat raw food consume products that are uncooked and unprocessed. The percentage of raw foods can vary from 50-100% raw. Their diet may or may not be vegan. Consumers of the raw diet do not cook foods at temperatures greater than 116 degrees Fahrenheit. Examples of raw foods are typically vegan include fresh fruit and vegetables, nuts, seeds, sprouted grains, beans, and dried fruit. Depending on the individual's preference, raw meat like Carpaccio or raw fish like sushi may be eaten as well as raw milk products.
Gioia Café & Restaurant is owned by Italian chef Carlo Zanasi and his partner Patricia Zanasi.
3 years ago, Carlo started to experiment with raw vegan food, having lived and worked in different countries around the globe.
i-Marbella was offered a taste experience that is hard to believe unless you try it for yourself.
One dish was hot, namely, rice pasta, and the sauce to accompany it was raw. The rest of the food was raw only, and a lot of sauces were made of nuts.
i-Marbella highly recommends to try the following dishes:
Raw Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe (seaweed), Raw Ravioli (carrot and baby coconut juice), Mock Sushi (made using walnut, contains no rice), and Tiramisu (no sugar).
The menu offers something for both usual customers as well as vegetarians.
Gioia is a high-quality gourmet raw vegetarian restaurant on the Golden Mile in Marbella that was designed with love and passion.
